Wang out at least 10 weeks

Worse-case scenario.

Chien-Ming Wang has a mid-foot sprain of the Lisfranc ligament and a partial tear of a tendon in his right foot, according to Peter Abraham. Wang will be on crutches and his foot will be in a protective boot for at least six weeks. Add on rehab time and we're looking at at least 10 weeks.

This is the same injury that Brian Bruney suffered earlier this season. The injury is usually more of a football injury, so it's strange to see two Yankees pitchers stricken with it.

The Yankees will not need a starter until Saturday. If they're going to make a trade, I can see them waiting for a bit.

10 weeks from today is Aug. 25, and there's absolutely no guarantee he'll be pitching-ready by then.

This is rough. But at least the Astros sold out three straight games because the Yankees came to Houston for the first time.
